Welcome to dickblick
Best Natural Series Easels offer the superior quality the Best brand is known for at prices any artist can afford. Like all Best easels, they are made of solid oak and backed by a lifetime guarantee. However the oak is left unfinished, making these easels a much more economical option for cash-strapped creatives. If you're seeking good features, great stability, and solid craftsmanship on a budget, Best Natural Series Easels can't be beat!

Lovely easely, hard to adjust hight
from Porltand, OR
Comments about Best Autry A-Frame Easel:
As I was unpacking this easel I was sure I'd be leaving a 5 star review. The unfinished wood is lovely and smooth, I really love that! I love that it was mostly assembled. Yay. I love that it's relatively light. I love the small footprint for my limited space. I love how sturdy it is and doesn't wiggle. Not liking that the post tilts back a little, so no way to set it straight up and down and I wish the post was a foot taller, but I can work around that. Then I tried to adjust the height of the tray. Oy. Needs two hands. Needed to remove the canvas from the tray. Took quite a while. First time, I had to loosen the nobs so much one fell off the back with its spring. That would be very disruptive while painting so I'll be leaving mine at a set height, unless I adjust it before I begin each painting session. That tray sticking/adjusting issue is a serious design flaw in my opinion and the reason I'm downgrading this from 5 to 3 stars.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Looks like it will do the job
from Devon, PA
I just got this, so I can't say how it will hold up, but it seems to be good quality, and well-made. It's nice solid wood, and light enough to carry around. It folds up well, too.

The easel is easy to assemble (almost no extra work required), is stable, holds even fairly large canvasses with ease and is light enough to be carried around. Great value.

My dream easel
I'm 5' 2", 100 lbs, and I can lift and move this easel about my studio. A great feature for a single woman. It's easily adjustable for both sitting and standing and is very stable. The quality surpassed my expectations. The fittings are well designed, easy to adjust, and of high quality. I love my Autry A-Frame.

Best really is BEST
from North Carolina
This is my 3rd Best easel purchase. I love them all and will happily be an an advocate for this brand because of the high quality and functionality of the products they make. This particular easel is simple to set up, very stable, holds a larger canvas and quickly folds into a nice flat shape to make room in the studio when not in use. All around great easel!
